List of all Japanese brands in my apartment:

Inax: Toilet
Iris Ohyama: Induction Heater
Panasonic: Microwave, Hair Dryer
Sharp: Fridge, Air Humidifier/Purifier
Sony: Radio clock
Toshiba: A/C unit, washing machine
National: Electric breaker, shower cabin


Now do the same with your own country. I bet you have more foreign brands than local brands.

First of all : I bet that outside Japan, nobody knows the brand of their toilet πŸ˜‚

@benoit I guess, for all these products you as a customer in Japan has to pay a higher price (brutto) in comparison to buy a korean, chinese or italian (yes, they produce washing machines too) product in France. And after all the low VAT in Japan gives local companies an advantage (netto is higher). Probably you know some other reasons. πŸ˜‰
